New role to drive increased global alignment and accelerated growth
Hannington joined Confirmit in 2005 to run the UK sales operation. Since then, his responsibilities have expanded to cover all Sales and Services functions of the EMEA and Asia Pacific teams. During this time, those regions have seen unparalleled growth and customer success. In his new position Hannington will manage Confirmit’s entire Sales, Services and Consulting offering at a global level.
Hannington said: “I’m very excited about taking on this new role at Confirmit. As a company, we’ve built fantastic relationships with clients around the world to help them drive success. By taking on this new challenge, I’m keen to ensure we deliver a seamless experience for customers wherever they are in the world.”
The newly created role is part of an ongoing focus for Confirmit to enable greater global alignment, excellence and consistency. Earlier in the year the company announced the promotion of Claire Sporton to SVP CX Innovations, and Heidi Brumbach to EVP Global Human Resources.
“One of my key goals in the role of CRO is to streamline and improve the critical processes that underpin our Sales and Services activities,” added Hannington. “We have fantastic teams in place in all our offices around the world. By ensuring we bring these teams together effectively, I believe we can not only continue to support our customers but ensure an unprecedented period of growth over the next few years.”
Ken Østreng, Confirmit CEO, said: “Tim’s promotion is a great step forward for Confirmit as we continue to meet our ambitious growth targets. Tim’s contribution over the past 13 years has been exceptional, and I’m very pleased that he’s accepted this new role. Uniting our business development activities under a single, world-class leader will ensure that Confirmit is positioned for accelerated growth at a global level.”
